      I've felt the same way at times. It's hard and it makes dating tricky. Anyways, I don't really have any answers, but I think it gets better over time. Just remember to stay strong and that nothing is worse than undiagnosed celiac.

      Gluten-Free Dating?
      I'm a male in my late 20s who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with celiac disease when going on dates with women. Specifically, I was wondering what experiences people have had going on dates with people who don't have celiac disease. For example, is it best to avoid food-related first dates?

      Recovery Time For Bowel Issues
      I was wondering how long it takes after starting a gluten-free diet to see large improvements with bowel issues and bloating. I started a gluten-free diet two weeks ago in response to positive blood tests / confirming biopsy. Since then, I've been gaining weight and have more energy. However, I haven't seen as much improvement with bowel issues.

      As far as this lifestyle change to gluten-free, I know I'm doing a pretty good job by not eating out, even at places with gluten-free options for now, and watching for cross-contamination by checking manufactures' practices for unclear items. I'm also watching for hidden sources of gluten, e.g. vitamins, soup bases.

      As an update, the biopsy was positive and confirmed Celiac. Will ask for Marsh classification at my follow-up.

      Thanks for the quick replies.The ranges on the lab they used was above 8 as positive for anti-ttg and at or above 20 as antibodies detected for anti-gliadin.

      I'll definitely post an update with biopsy results. Yeah, looking forward to receiving that decoder ring in the mail.

      Just looking forward to feeling better.

      Biopsy Odds
      Anti-TTG IgA 63. Anti-Gliadin IgA > 100. Endoscopy showed inflammation and scalloping. What are the odds of the biopsy confirming celiac?
